Emerging Designers

START YOUR CLOTHING LINE

The Evans Group has been helping emerging fashion designers launch and scale their collections for over 15 years. The house has worked with over 1200 designers, many of whom were just launching their businesses. Unlike many fashion manufacturers, we are thrilled to work hand-in-hand with emerging designers from the very beginning. We have developed a tailored approach to guide nascent fashion designers through the complexity of developing styles, full collections, tech packs, design techniques, and fabric and notion sourcing. 

The Evans Group have teams that specialize in everything from wovens, knits, athletic wear, to gowns and avant-garde creations. We develop and produce all of our work in our downtown Los Angeles headquarters or our San Francisco atelier. We are proud to be Made in LA and Made in America. We also pride ourselves on being one of the few fashion houses in the US with our unique skills and capabilities. We are thrilled to have recently invested in the latest Gerber software and machinery, expanding our capacity and capabilities to include everything from delicate hand work to automated precision.

PROCESS

Discuss

Discuss

We begin every client relationship with an in-person or remote consultation meeting. This is a time to understand your experience, team, goals, budget, timeline, and more. This is also a time to explain how The Evans Group works, the teams and services we offer, and how we will help you achieve your goals.  If in-depth advice is needed, we have one-hour consultation calls available with our founder for business or industry advice.

Design & Source

To start, we will create TEG Specification Sheets for each of your designs, or provide optional full-service design and fabric sourcing services if you need extra help. Clients who work with our Design and Sourcing Team can have mood boards, flat drawings, and line sheets created for them, while simultaneously receiving expert sourcing to find the fabrics they are looking for.  Consider us an extension of your team!

Finalize

Develop

Your collection will come to life with a dedicated team.  A project manager will plan timelines, weekly updates, and answer any questions you may have along the way.  Our pattern makers are regarded as the absolute best in their craft and will draft patterns with an unmatched fit.  The Evans Group’s talented team of Sewers will finalize your designs.  Together, your team will ensure your collection is developed with extreme precision and skill.

Produce

 Once the development portion is completed, our Production Manager can provide a complete costing report to you for production.  TEG production is geared towards Emerging and High-end designers, with low minimums and high-quality craftsmanship for complex styles.  All projects are Made in Los Angeles and promote sustainable and socially responsible practices, giving you peace of mind as you launch your brand.

PRICING

The Evans Group thoughtfully developed  these packages after learning exactly what emerging designers specifically need to get their clothing lines started. Whether you are designing a few first samples or an entire collection, we have a package that fits every need. Each package allocates for necessary things like adjustments and duplicates, to ensure that there are no surprises or unforeseen additional costs.
